Great photos. Always like to see the older buildings when I'm in Sydney.

Most of the trees are diseased and deemed to be dangerous, so over the next few years nearly all are going to have to chopped down. Luckily some will be ok for the next 15 years or so.

Great photos. What's GBT? I'd like to see more of that at street level. I love scrapers that rise up from older buildings.

Cool shots !

Looking at these pics makes me so angry that Melbourne still has those bloody awnings at the base of it's hertiage buildings. Sydney's look great without them.

Very classy indeed. We got to see a lot of Sydney during the Olympics and it certainly looked like one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
